LOCATION: Kampala Slums, Uganda
GOAL: Give 15 Ugandan Youth A Fresh Lease on Life
STILL NEEDED: $10,900
The Elevate program has graduated several successful classes of young entrepreneurs. It is amazing to see what God is still doing through this program each semester.
These young people face a life of gangs, drugs, and teenage pregnancy. But it doesn’t have to be that way…
You Can Change Their Future!
Small Business Changes Lives!
Scarcity of opportunity to cultivate skills such as graphic and web design leaves young people without hope. In Uganda, students who live in the slums find themselves caught up drugs, violence, and prostitution with no concept of a better life. Small business training and loans opens the door for these students to dream big, set goals, and build a new life!
How Do We Get There?
The Alternativ Global Entrepreneurs course has brought massive life change to many in Uganda and its being paired with tech training from Era92 to slingshot students into a new life with thriving business opportunities! The Era92 Elevate program’s sole purpose is to empower youths-at-risk in Uganda through skilling them in Design, Arts and Technology, Entrepreneurship, Leadership and Sustainable Development. By the end of a four month program, each student will have found a client in their specific field and performed a service for them, be it designing a website, a video, screen printing or graphic designing.
Will you join us?
Will you facilitate life change for aspirational youth in Uganda? Students need access to the simplest items such as a desk to put their computer on! Each student will need a computer, a keyboard, and a business training booklet. Join us in kickstarting hope and a future!
